George Clooney recently fired back at his “ER” co-star, Vanessa Marquez, after the actress claimed that she got blacklisted because of the actor.

On her Twitter account, Marquez retweeted an article on Clooney speaking out against Harvey Weinstein. The producer is being accused of sexually assaulting actresses and models throughout the span of his career. Marquez called Clooney’s comments [expletive] and said that the actor helped blacklist her when she spoke about harassment while on “ER.”

In another post, Marquez claimed that she was racially and sexually harassed daily on set while she was still on the show. When she told producer John Wells about it in 1995, they decided to blacklist her from Hollywood.

While speaking with E! News, Clooney denied Marquez’s allegations by saying that he did not even know she was blacklisted. “I take her at her word. I was not a writer or a producer or a director on that show. I had nothing to do with casting. I was an actor and only an actor,” he said.

The “Ocean’s Eleven” actor added that if Marquez was told he had something to do with her being blacklisted from the industry then she was lied to. “The fact that I couldn’t affect her career is only surpassed by the fact that I wouldn’t,” he said.

Meanwhile, Clooney worked closely with Weinstein in multiple projects, and the actor also credited the producer for kick-starting his career in various films. While speaking with the Daily Beast, Clooney said that he was shocked by all of the accusations plaguing the producer.

“It’s indefensible. That’s the only word you can start with. Harvey’s admitted to it and it’s indefensible. I’ve known Harvey for twenty years. He gave me my first big break as an actor in films on ‘From Dusk till Dawn,’ he gave me my first big break as a director with ‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.’ We’ve had dinners, we’ve been on location together, we’ve had arguments. But I can tell you that I’ve never seen any of this behavior – ever,” he said.
